I did a search and came up with this from the Fender forum - forums.fender.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=71058
What harps do you like? Only diatonic or do you also play chromatic? Bass? Chord? Octave?
Welcome to the Club. You're seeing the latest incarnation of it. Previously we had over ten thousand members. Started to get a LOT of spamming and the proprietor had to make changes to the site. The spirit of harp runs strong through all of it
Good to have you here and I hope we can help in any way.

Yes, I will try using my camera when I think it reasonable time to try recording.
(I'm still at the stage of getting my embouchure right & trying to hit the right holes.)
My 'playing' is very 'laboured' just now, but I'm thinking it will show me if I'm improving, (or not).
Very nice, in looks & sound.
I love the sound of the CX12, which I managed to get at a decent price, but thought it might be a bit too loud for practicing on hence the little Swan, however, I'm finding my lips sticking on the metal mouthpiece.
I also find the Chrometta mouthpiece somewhat peculiar & don't understand why Hohner should think it better for a beginner.
My N+1 is most likely going to be a CX12 LC/tenor, which is what I had intended to get when the C came up.
1) Summertime by George Gershwin
2) Hard Times Come Again No More
3) Blue Bayou
These are the name of the songs.
This is such a good idea - well done Marcy! It may even warrant its own sub-forum if it takes off.
A possible spin-off idea might be to use basic tunes for beginners, so more people may feel confident enough to contribute. They wouldn't need to have any time constraints. More advanced players could post embellished versions also.
Could be a great resource for critique and playing advice...
I've only filmed myself once or twice, using my phone. The sound quality was pretty bad, but I honestly couldn't say if that was indicative of my lack of playing skill, the room acoustics, or something inherent with the phone (such as auto level recording balance or normalising).
I guess you should try the cheapest options first, then escalate the tech as you see fit...
Hi Rich, and welcome.
I once considered getting a Melody Maker. If I recall correctly, the tuning (by that I mean the note layout) is not quite the same as a standard diatonic. I think this was so you could play melodies without having to bend any notes.
This might be an issue if you rely on tabs written for standard diatonics.
Hey folks, I'm back after a hectic period at work (and home) lasting too many months, meaning I could hardly even play harmonica - let alone post on the forum. Will try my best to becoming more active again...
Dexer, congrats! You have a gift for making harmonicas look their best in your photos. My Manji never looked that good, but I still like the way the comb looks like dairy fudge.
I'm very excited by the arrival of my first Manji. It looks and sounds great. I was able to get this Manji delivered for about $20.00 less than the cost of Marine Band. I'm a big fan of Suzuki harps and they haven't let me down. A demo video will follow when I can find the time to make a recording (it's a busy day).
Hello All... I'm a new member here (obviously). I've been playing harmonica for about 20 years now. Mostly Blues & Rock.
I posted a question in the "Hardware" section about what tubes to use for my '59 RI Bassman amp - Plz check that if you're knowledgeable.
I will check in here fairly regularly and offer any help/advice that seems fitting, as well as look to you folks for direction as needed.
Hi - I'm a new member here. I'm looking for the ideal Tube combination for my '59 (re-issue) Bassman amp. It was built in '95 or '96. Does anyone here have that knowledge, or know where to go to get it..? Thanks in advance.
